Cash? I was thinking 20$ in an envelope inside a Christmas card. Is it rude to just hand them the sealed card and tell them Merry Christmas?

Before people get all butt hurt, I like my 2 delivery people. UPS always gets it there and they are nice enough to put things where I asked them too. Same for USPS, at least my local driver.

My local USPS guy has also done some BIG favors with expensive or time sensitive stuff in the past, so I wanna show appreciation.

My mail lady seems to do a pretty good job at putting the mail in some box out by the curb without me asking her

I saw my USPS guy and made sure he has my route tomorrow, he doesn't always work Fridays.

UPS is coming tomorrow with a bunch of shit. I'll check to make sure it is the normal guy.

Gift cards from where? starbucks, food, something else?

Probably like a visa gift card so they can use it just about anywhere.

I think my carrier will be getting a map of the neighborhood with addresses and names. There was a box "delivered" on the 30th of November that is unaccounted for, and I was home all day that day, still unaccounted for after 2 phone calls to the post master . Another time my set of clubs got delivered to another house in the neighborhood. Guess I'm lucky to be a lefty cause the poor sap who received my clubs brought them to me that evening .

Don't bother, the DIADs already have all of those things

OP - folks generally tip cash in envelopes minus cards. Anywhere from 10 bucks to 500 - obviously give what you're comfortable with.

Also, regifted gifts cards have been popular lately.

Not tipping either. I have a PO Box. And the UPS guy just leaves packages on my doorstep and does not even knock.
